The focus of the paper is on this latter category, where inputs are varied according to within-paddock spatial variation and spatial information is used to improve decision-making and management... A snapshot of the current status of PA adoption is presented using available data on variable rate fertiliser management and yield mapping across regions... A snapshot of current adoption The results presented in Table 1 capture just two aspects of precision agriculture on a national scale that includes 5 selected SA regions (see report cited below for further details)...

To be held at Charles Sturt University, the Update will focus on those significant cropping issues expected to confront grain growers next season and beyond... GRDC Southern Regional Panel chair Keith Pengilley says the program for the Update is being developed by a planning committee in consultation with a broad network of grains industry representatives, ensuring the topics will be relevant and timely. ".. Advisers attending the Update will be informed about the latest research outcomes and technologies so they can support their grain-growing clients in their quest to improve their farming systems and boost profitability," Mr Pengilley said...

The outputs of this and previous projects confirm the ability of CQ grain growers to produce more grain from less water using an opportunity cropping strategy during a decade of low rainfall years (2000-2009) and still maintain a profitable industry... This group of activities showed that the technologies assessed in the project were not 'grower friendly', and that they needed a high level of expertise for successful use and adoption... Cropping frequency An assessment of cropping sequences over 10 years on the Moonggoo and Kilmore case study farms examined the potential for increasing the cropping frequency in CQ as a means of improving the profitability of grain production...

" Facilitating increased on-farm adoption of broadleaf species in crop sequences to improve grain production and profitability.. The area sown to pulse legume crops or canola has dramatically declined in the past 8-10 years, and despite 65-70% of southern grain region still growing pastures in rotation with crops, many of these pastures tend to have low legume contents and provide little nitrogen benefit to following crops... There are many good reasons why growers have reduced the frequency of use of broadleaf species in recent years related to late starts to the growing season, drought and risk aversion...

The objective of the national demonstration initiative is to establish a network of farms to demonstrate strategies for grain farming systems that address adaptation to climate change impacts... As a consequence: - Farmers and advisers have direct access to, and learning from, on-ground demonstration of new and existing, locally-relevant adaptations to climate change to maintain or enhance farm viability.- Rapid dissemination of meaningful and believable messages on adapting to climate change to their local communities.- Assessment of the emission implications of the demonstrated different adaptations using existing National Greenhouse Gas.. In collaboration with grower groups (including Facey, Liebe, North Mallee Farm Improvement Group and WANTFA), the Department of Agriculture and Food Western Australia (DAFWA) has planned a network of farms demonstrating climate risk management strategies across the central WA wheatbelt in 2011...
